Ilorin – Mr Bolaji Shina, a resident of Sabo-Oke Area of Ilorin, on Friday prayed an Ilorin Area Court to dissolve his five-year-old marriage to his wife, Kemi, because of her troublesome nature.
The 40-year-old man told the court that his wife derives pleasure in causing trouble wherever she finds herself.
“My wife will at times intentionally frustrate me by going against my directives in order for her to create room for trouble,” he said.
The petitioner further told the court that his wife had fought with most of her colleagues at her work place as well as within their neighbourhood.
According to him, their marriage was contracted in 2008 and had produced two male children.
“ I want an end to this marriage because my wife’s behaviour has brought shame to the family name and I cannot bear it anymore,” he said.
The defendant, however, objected to the prayer of her husband, saying she was still interested in the marriage.
“I promise to control my aggression and take to my husband’s wishes every time he instructs me,” she said.
Kemi, however, prayed the court for an adjournment to make a reconciliatory move, saying she would always keep the peace with her husband.
The presiding judge, Mr Ibrahim Abdulquadri, adjourned the case to Aug. 22 for a report of settlement or continuation of hearing. (NAN)
